Yep, I’m still utterly moved by well executed time lapse photography. This stunning compilation of 260,000 shots captured in various locations across the Pacific Northwest is no exception.
Portland, Oregon-based photographer John Eklund shot the photos between August 2011 and August 2012 on both a Canon 5D Mark II and a Canon 5D Mark III, using three different lenses. He needed 6.3 TB of hard drive space to store the year’s worth of shots. And, as you can see below, the resulting time lapse is truly amazing.

“Address is Approximate” is a stop motion animation made by director Tom Jenkins of The Theory. The video was shot on a Canon 5D Mark II DSLR and tells the story of “a lonely desk toy [who] longs for escape from the dark confines of the office, so he takes a cross country road trip to the Pacific Coast in the only way he can—using a toy car and Google Maps Street View.” If that doesn’t make you click play below, then I don’t know what will. Behold, “Address is Approximate”:
Morocco & Spain from Mike Matas on Vimeo.
This past September, photographer Mike Matas traveled across Morocco and Spain by train with his girlfriend, his Canon 5D Mark II, and seven lenses. He captured over 4,000 photos and has presented them in this time-lapse-esque two-minute video, which is sure to inspire both wanderlust and creative inspiration in all you photographers.

Wow. Apparently Greg Yaitanes, director of the Fox series House, shot the show’s season finale exclusively with the Canon 5D MarkII D-SLR. Petapixel has republished some of the Q+A that Yaitanes had with followers on Twitter regarding the bold move. One person asked how the 5D Mark II compared to traditional cameras, to which the director replied, “i loved it and feel it’s the future.” [Gizmodo via Petapixel via PhilipBloom via Engadget]

The New York Times‘ Matt Gross recently featured a Q&A with travel photographer Robert Caplin in his “Frugal Traveler” column. Caplin’s images have been published in National Geographic, ESPN The Magazine and The New York Times, and in the discussion with The Frugal Traveler, he talks about shooting with a Canon 5D Mark II as well as an iPhone, and names the Canon G11 as his go-to point-and-shoot if he had to spend under $500 for a camera.
